First Look At Jessica Chastain's X-Men: Dark Phoenix Character

It's set in 1992, about a decade after the events of last year's X-Men: Apocalypse, which Kinberg produced.

The result is the team's first trip into space where a mission gone awry awakens none other than, you guessed it, The Phoenix Force within Sophie Turner's Jean Grey. There's no telling whether this is now Mystique's standard form, or if she's reacting to the new outer space setting of Dark Phoenix.

In all seriousness, the Dark Phoenix first look is pretty nondescript, with a nude Sophie Turner rocking fiery locks and showing cracks of flame in her skin.

X-Men: Dark Phoenix writer/director Simon Kinberg has revealed new details about the plot of the film to Entertainment Weekly. In fact, Charles Xavier lands on the cover of TIME magazine, and with his newfound inflated ego he starts sending the team on more risky missions. "[The film] was so clear in my head, emotionally and visually, that it would have killed me to hand this to somebody else to direct", Kinberg said. But that's giving Xavier a growing ego that's becoming a liability for the team. But if one or more of these incredibly busy actors signed a contract to return for just one more X-Men movie, that might make sense.

The X-Men Movie Universe continues with The New Mutants on April 13th; Untitled Deadpool Sequel on June 1st; and X-Men: Dark Phoenix on November 2nd. "There's a lot of sacrifice and a lot of suffering".

Neil Patrick Harris Fills In for Jimmy Kimmel & Delivers Opening Monologue
The baby, Billy Kimmel, had been scheduled to have the surgery in October, but it was postponed because of household colds. Neil Patrick Harris filled in for Jimmy Kimmel last night on his show and had some good news to share with fans.

Additionally, Jessica Chastain's mystery character was identified as an otherworldly shapeshifter who comes into contact with the Phoenix.
